Make your home even more cozy this winter with proper humidification

We all know the saying, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”, well during the winter months it’s not the heat, it’s your home’s lack of humidity. Humidity is regularly to blame for our discomfort during the summer, but a absence of humidity during the colder months in Mankato area will not only make you uncomfortable it can also negatively affect your indoor air quality. As you’ll probably be spending more time indoors this season, a whole-home humidifier could be just the answer you need to improve both your comfort and your health.

Keeping Healthy
Keeping proper humidity levels within your home you can also block the spread of infection. If your air lacks moisture, the mucous membranes throughout your sinuses will dry out and will be unable to filter out bacteria. Bacteria and viruses that lead to the cold and flu have an easier time traveling through dry air, which is why they are so commonplace during the winter months. By maintaining the humidity levels in your home at the proper levels you can expect to feel an improvement in your health throughout the winter.

Combating Static Electricity
If your touches have been zapping your friends and family, you have a humidity problem on your hands. Because water conducts electricity, having moisture in the air gives static charges an exit route to leave an object. If there’s no moisture in the air, that charge will have no way to escape except out your fingertips onto the next thing you touch.
